Max (born June 1, 1996) known on YouTube as testdrive426 and Test Drive Blogs. Testdrive is an american that mostly focuses on cars in his videos. He makes both gaming and real life videos.


Origin of the name "testdrive426"

The whole story behind the name testdrive426 is that in around 2006-2007 Max needed a PlayStation Network name for the PSP. He had been playing a ton of Test Drive Unlimited on said PSP so that's where the testdrive portion came from. the 426 was just a random though of the hugely popular Chrysler 426 Hemi engine.


testdrive started his first YouTube channel in May 2009, known as "360gamer1978", then in 2010 decided that name wasn't any good since he started playing PS3 and PC games. In April 2010 he found that the name "testdrive426" wasn't taken on YouTube yet. He started putting up random videos from games such as Forza Motorsport and Project Gotham Racing 2 recorded with either a Flip video camera or a Kodak HD video camera. In October 2011, he purchased his first PVR, a Hauppauge 1212 then started the hugely popular series, "Forza Motorsport 4 Top Gear Power Laps" which to this date has around 400,000 views total spanning around 350 videos. In July 2012, he hit 100 subscribers. Also, in July 2012 he launched his non-racing game let's play channel "testdrive426lps" which has been gone since around 2014. In June 2014, Max got partnered with the MCN known as Fullscreen. On September 7, 2014 Max hit 1,000 subscribers. He now has over 1.5 million total video views and 2,500 subscribers.

Real Life

On April 8, 2011, Max decided that he wanted to separate his real life videos from the gaming videos so he created "testdriveblogs" (now Test Drive Blogs), a channel dedicated to videos of real cars. Test Drive Blogs now has nearly 1000 Subscribers and over 500,000 views.
